From the desk of Steve Shultz:
This last week, I received INDEPENDENTLY, at least three separate words from three different prophetic people, who received fresh revelation, on their own – that we are entering into a season of "OPEN DOORS".
In every case, from what I could discern, we are asked to COOPERATE WITH THE LORD, both in prayer and obedience, and taking steps of faith – to be certain we don't miss our personal and "corporate" open doors that are suddenly flung open before us.
God is opening doors before YOU in this very season – not only YOU but around the earth toward HIS BODY. This IS A SEASON OF OPEN DOORS. I'll be sharing other words on this in coming days.
Note from Steve Shultz: People ask me, "How can I support The Elijah List?"
My answer: The Elijah List articles are emailed for FREE to you and your friends – or published on our website – 365-Days-a-Year – to readers all over the world. Your support helps to pay for this effort by simply purchasing your prophetic resources directly from elijahshopper.com.
We appreciate our dear readers and we thank you for supporting your Elijah List staff!
Vision: A Season of Open Doors is Here
I had the same vision twice this week for two different people. Both were making decisions about an opportunity. In the vision I saw someone laying in the back of a hay cart which was being drawn by two horses. The person was laying in the straw and the sun was shining on them. It seemed like one of those lazy kind of days.
Then I got the words, "Make hay while the sun shines." I don't know if Americans use that expression, but I hear it in England all the time. I looked it up and it said this in the way of a meaning: "Take opportunities that are given." Or, another way of putting it is: "Go through open doors."
This is a season of opportunities and open doors. Don't waste the opportunities. Doors can open and close, windows of opportunity can open and shut – quickly. You have to be at the door so that when it opens you jump through.
I was in a church one time and I saw a door in a vision. The door was closed, but there were people leaning on the door so that when it opened they fell through it. Some other people were doing something a little ways away, but they were keeping an eye on the door.
There were other people who were so busy working – "working for Jesus" – they weren't even aware that there was a door. They didn't realize there were opportunities all around them. I tell people all the time, "Jesus isn't so much interested in you working for Him as He is in you yielding to Him, so that He can work through you. 'For it's God that worketh in you both to will and to do of His good pleasure.'" (Philippians 2:13).
When I was on a Delta flight a while ago, I read the airline magazine. In it, there was an article by a successful businessman. He said about five to seven opportunities to make money pass by the average person every day, but they don't even see them because most of us are not geared that way. Or, as I always say in the meetings, we don't have our antenna up sometimes...
It's Time To Take Opportunities
This is not the time to sit back – it's the time to take opportunities, go through doors, climb a few mountains. I had that word a while ago, given in the article "God Is Raising Up An Army of Wild Grandmas" (see Elijah List). My friend, Beverly, who lives in San Antonio, lost her husband a couple of years ago. She was sad for the loss of her friend and life-long love. But instead of getting a cat and sitting around, she decided to get up and see what there was out there. Well, she found lots of exciting things to do. There were doors all around her, and she packed her case and started to go through them.
Remember the little lady in the Bible who had been sick for so long? She had an issue of blood. Well, one day, this lady saw the Source of her healing. She saw Jesus; He was the door for her. Jesus said, "I am the door" (John 10:7).
Well, let me tell you, it would have been very easy for her NOT to take that opportunity. She must have been very weak, having that hemorrhaging. And, there was a crowd around Jesus. But she pushed through the crowd and touched Jesus. He was her door.
God is moving in a wonderful way – the wind is blowing, it's raining. Doors and opportunities are there for you – take a look around – put your periscope up and see. You know, you only have one life to live down here. You may as well have some fun and adventures.
